    I really appreciate this forum for all the help. It has been so helpful in my effort to get a waiver of the 2YHRR of the J visa. I thought it is also good to give back by sharing my experience/timeline. I will be very happy to answer any question.

    It took almost 8 months to get three NOCs from India.

    congratulations!

    Can you elaborate on what was your experience in getting the documents from India? Which state did you send them to? Did you follow-up with them? Were the papers sent to you or to the consulate?
    Thanks

    I am from Jharkhand. In Ministry of Human Resource and passport office things were easy. Human Resource sent me the NOC by mail. My friend collected NOC from passport office. But Ministry of Home Jharkhand was very lengthy process. You need to find somebody (friend or relative) to follow-up each and everything. And finally they sent the letter to Indian embassy at DC but gave me a copy. It's good to ask them a copy, you never know.
